Re: Can ants see through red plastic film?

I've searched google and asked on a couple of forums, but haven't been able to get an answer to this so maybe it is just a dumb question.

The nanitics of Queen Antoinette and Queen Antonia have arrived! I'm such a big kid, I got genuinely excited when I opened up the box I keep the test tubes in to see these girls all running around. it looks like Queen Antoinette has the larger colony, so I'll probably keep her and put Queen Antonia ...

Re: The Ant Namers Group!

Ehh ants? I am guessing queen antigone will raise a brood of ant magicians? Now you see me... Antelope for quick ants? Or the ones who sneak off with male elates? Anteater for vampiric ants? Ante for poker playing ants... Looooooooool, those are some good ones, but I think I'll stick with name-name...

Walked up to me in the park yesterday, London UK

Can you guys help me identify this ant? The research I have done suggests a Tetramorium caespitum queen. What do you guys think? If it is a tetramorium, I assume it's a queen because it doesn't have the segmented butt that the male is supposed to have, nor two sets of wings, I think. It's about 6mm ...
